Maybe you were born this way, and raised as a wild creature. Maybe something bit you and you woke up with an itch at the base of your spine. Maybe your Change came on unexpected and violent, and you had to run away from home. Whatever the reason, whatever joy or trauma: you are home now. You are in the Pack.
Flotsam: Adrift Amongst the Stars
Flotsam: Adrift Amongst the Stars is a roleplaying game about outcasts, renegades and misfits living in the belly of a space station, in the shadow of a more prosperous society. You play through their everyday lives, interpersonal relationships and small-scale drama in the Below, a dangerous world where poverty, social strife and gang conflict sit side-by-side with alien technology and supernatural weirdness.
Lovecraftesque is the GMless storytelling game of brooding cosmic horror you’ve been waiting for. You tell the story of a lone Witness at the mercy of strange and terrifying events. The game helps you create a slow-building mystery, culminating in a climactic scene of horror.

10 Million A.D. is a PbtA game about the desperate, disunited denizens of Earth defending their planet against a humanity returning from the stars millennia after they ruined their homeworld. It was written by Ryan Rhodes, Russell Borogrove and Josh Fox for the 2015 threeforged contest.
Defenders is a weird little pseudo-wargame / roleplaying game hybrid about a city under siege which Josh Fox wrote as an unofficial contribution to the Threeforged contest. (Like the other threeforged entries, this was a three-person effort; Josh was author number three. I’ve lost the details of the original authors, but if it’s you, get in touch and I’ll credit you.)
Field Work is the winning entry in the 2015 threeforged contest. It’s a light-hearted game about IT technicians solving people’s computer problems, in a world where computer problems can be caused by djinni or hellwolves. It was written by Josh Fox, Shreyas Sampat and Grant Howitt. Rabalias’s round 1 contribution is here.
Gashlycrumb is a game of steampunk investigators hunting down a murderous spectre while trapped in the bodies of children. It was written by Tom Robbins, Josh Fox and Scott Slomiany for the 2015 threeforged contest. Josh’s round 2 contribution “Voices” – which is about a team of badasses trapped in someone else’s mind together – is here.
